The Original XBOX is still AWESOME in 2021

Thanks for sharing, most definitely going to watch!

I haven't done any homebrewing on the Xbox OG. But i recently took it out and did some emergency surgery to take out the capacitor that can render it completely useless.

I never played the Xbox OG on an HDTV back then. So i connected it via component cables and played Dragon's Lair 3d at 1080p. I was blown away at how well it ran the game.

I recorded the game at 720p but I assure you it was at 1080p.

Dirk is one of the all time great heroes. And Daphne is a real beauty

Microsoft knew once they dabbled with the Xbox they had no other choice but continue making consoles, Bill Gates picked up the phone and said “how can we compete with Sony and Nintendo”.

I found out that the only way to transfer saves between two Xboxes is to use a memory card. That is sucky.

I need to transfer saves to this newer model I got a while back.

Are they not softmodded? If so it's only a case of FTP'ing into them and copying the TDATA and UDATA folders.

My 360 elite broke. The disc drive will not read discs.

I just went ahead and bought one of those special edition blue 360 Es on eBay as a replacement. They are actually at a decent price.

They were the last 360s made.

Eh? It had more hardware performance and forward-thinking GPU features than either PS2 or even the Gamecube, plus built-in HDD, built-in broadband ethernet, MP3 music rip functionality, etc. Tech-wise and library-wise it's clearly a fantastic system.
I agree overall but it launched nearly two years after PS2 so that's pretty natural.
